I shot this with a tripod-mounted camera from the shoulder of the road. I operated the the shutter from inside the vehicle using a remote control radio trigger to reduce the danger of deadly lighting. Shortly after this capture a strong wind gust nearly toppled my heavy tripod. Convinced that I "got the shot" I quickly retrieved my precious camera before any damage occurred.
